    Variables?

    So none of my variables were saving so I made this simple code to check to see what was up and I dont know what to do

    Code:
    int main()
    {
    int x,y;
    x=1;
    y=1;
    printf("%d %d", &x, &y);
    }

    Returns

    2280676 2280672

    Because & is "the address of". So you're not printing x, you're printing where in memory x lives.

    On my compiler you are not supposed to put the '&' sign infront of the variable so my program would look like this,
    Code:
    main()
    {
        int x;
        int y;
    
        x=1;
        y=1;
    
        printf("%d %d", x, y);
    }
    That is how I would do that.
